Dart Marina Hotel and Spa
Ranked #1 of 6 Hotels in Dartmouth
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We had a short break at this hotel last week and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
I enjoyed a massage at the spa which was excellent!
Our room was spotless and comfortable, with amazing views of the ferry and harbour.
The breakfast was superb except for the fresh fruit which could have benefited from more imaginative fruit!--it was rather low on fresh pineapple and melon which I know is readily available at this time of year--and CHEAPLY too!
We were not overly impressed with the restaurant in the evening though. It was expensive and we felt, not really worth the money--especially as there are a lot of other restaurants/pubs in Dartmouth which are really good!
The problem we experienced was swiftly dealt with and to our total satisfaction.
We would love to go again!

Room Tip: We had a balcony room with French doors!

We have just spent the weekend in Dartmouth staying in this hotel and it was the first time for both. We thoroughly enjoyed Dartmouth and the hotel. The best way I can describe this hotel is to say it has the most comfortable level of luxury, enough to make you feel that your stay is special but not too much that it makes you feel uncomfortable. Every member of staff that we met were charming and seemed happy in their work which was a pleasant surprise. We had dinner in the restaurant one of our evenings and the food and service was excellent, and as mentioned in other reviews the views from the dining room are lovely. There is work being carried out at the hotel at the moment, they are creating a garden in front of the dining room area. We were informed of the work by email before our trip and told that the hotel would do everything possible to keep any disruption to a minimum. I have to admit that apart from being able to see where the work is taking place it was not noticeable to us at all and had no impact on our stay. I am already looking forward to being able to go to Dartmouth again and stay in this lovely place. Without knowing that we were celebrating our anniversary the staff still made our stay very special, thank you.

From start to finish the service was first class. Amazing river views from the hotel room and the town is just a few minutes walk. Dinner in the restaurant is delicious and the waiting staff were superb. We were fortunate to have a massage in the Spa and I would highly recommend going if you have time. Overall quite an expensive stay but definitely worth the money.

We stayed this weekend and this hotel could be amazing.

The service was 75% there. We had to chase most things in the restaurant such as toast/coffee and order to be taken.

We stayed in a suite and the bathroom was very small. Premier Inn have bigger bathrooms.

It is in a great location and only a 5 minute walk into the heart of Dartmouth.

I would go back. However, it is a shame the service is not all there to match the location and what the hotel could offer its guests.

Room Tip: Suite 37 tiny bathroom

Contemporary style hotel with a range of room sizes to suit a variety of budgets. Definitely not the cheapest accommodation but certainly top class in terms of decor, location and food. All rooms and the dining room overlook the river, the marina and the car ferry from Kingswear. There is a health spa with a gym and small pool which is available for clients to use. Very polite and helpful staff throughout. We were greeted in the car park by a charming porter who took our luggage to our rooms. Breakfast is excellent with a huge choice. We would love to come back, which is the best recommendation we can give.

We didn't use the restaurant for dinner as a three course meal was £36 per person. However, we can recommend the pub next door, The Floating Bridge, for very good, well presented food at a reasonable price.

The centre of Dartmouth is only a 5 minute walk. The town is delightfully picturesque with a good range of local shops and galleries and plenty of tea rooms and restaurants.

Room Tip: Standard double rooms are small but adequate. All rooms overlook the river. Some have a balcony wh...

We have just enjoyed a four night stay at this lovely hotel. From the friendly greeting to the great food this is a great place for a short trip. The decor is very contemporary but also cosy. Great lounge and an outside area that looked great but unfortunately our weather made it far too cold to use. Lovely rooms and views across the Dart river and nice room touches like Elemis products and fresh milk each day for your tea. All of the staff very good and friendly and the food is superb. Menu changes each day so it keeps it interesting. We did use the pool very briefly and the whole spa area looks modern and clean. Nice thing is the location as it's an easy stroll into town along the river so lots to see and plenty of shops and restaurants. In January it was quiet but I'm sure each season would have it's charm. I am sure we will go back.

Room Tip: We went for luxury as a bit bigger but I think all have a great view.

All staff were very nice and helpful in this riverside hotel with lovely views. Décor is clean and modern and food good. Quiet location with a big car park and just a 10 minute level walk along the River Dart into the town. What's not to like!

Room Tip: Choose the top floor to avoid creaky floors above your head.The only drawback.

Simply breath-taking by the River Dart. Early morning walks, slow afternoons taking tea on the terrace, evenings watching the lights dance on the river. Not forgetting food glorious food. The River Restaurant certainly lives up to its name with wide River views from every table. Dart Marina is a place where it’s easy to hide away in a peaceful corner, spend an hour in the Spa, or just while away the time gazing at the amazing views. ... more   less
